Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy has ruled out a summer move to Loftus Road, saying that he’s happy with how things are going at Fulham…
The Cottagers captain is happy under Martin Jol and is keen to stay at Craven Cottage, despite a reported offer of a coaching role with west London rivals, QPR. The player has revealed that he expects to sign a new contract at Craven Cottage when his current deal expires at the end of the season.
The 35-year-old midfielder is yet to extend his contract at Fulham, prompting talks of a potential move to west London rivals QPR, where manager Mark Hughes is thought to be preparing a player-coaching role for the Fulham skipper.
However, the former Liverpool man has assured Fulham fans that he is keen to remain with the Cottagers for the foreseeable future, stating:
“I have spoken to the club a couple of times but there’s no great urgency with me because I’m happy and they are happy with me. I’d be surprised if it didn’t get sorted,” he told The Sun.
Murphy stated his delight with the squad that Martin Jol has put together at Craven Cottage, and feels that the team’s strength in depth has never been better.
He added: “The squad is as good as it’s been. You can take three or four out and put three or four in and not worry.”
Murphy has scored 17 goals in 163 appearances for Fulham and has been capped by England on nine occasions.
